Wikimedia NYC invites you to attend the Wiki Loves Pride edit-a-thon scheduled for Thursday, July 12th at Jefferson Market Library! Wiki Loves Pride is a global campaign to expand and improve LGBT-related content across all Wikimedia projects, in all languages. Most activities of Wiki Loves Pride take place between June and October, traditionally the months when lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities around the world celebrate LGBT culture and history. This year's New York City event is held in July in order to support attendees who may wish to upload photographs or write articles about someone or something they learned during Pride in June.
Training will be provided by Wikimedia NYC, and no previous Wikipedia experience necessary. Please bring a laptop!
